Subject: File.link on Win32


Hi all,

I noticed that win32.c in 1.8.2 p3 contained a link() function (or maybe
it was always there and I never noticed).  Anyway, it doesn't seem to
work properly.

File.link("C:\\temp.txt","C:\\temp.lnk")

It creates a shortcut, but it's busted.  Double clicking on the shortcut
does nothing.  If I right click on the shortcut in Windows Explorer and
select the "shortcut" tab it says, "This is not a valid shortcut".

Any ideas?

Regards,

Dan
